Brief Answer: Avoid fat, carbohydrates, do regular exercise Detailed Answer: Hi,XXXXX, Thanks for posting query. Fat on tummy suggests central type of obesity. There are two reasons by which there is increasing weight and deposition of fat collecting on various part of body like abdomen, thighs etc. - If food intake is more and there is less expenditure of calories leading to formation of fat depositing in body. - Lack of physical activity and lack of exercise is another reason for having this problem. To balance this problem, change your diet style. - Take minimum of fat and carbohydrate in diet. - Take optimum protein. - Avoid taking butter, ghee, cheese, panier, puddings. - Avoid fried and junk food. - Take more green veggies in diet which will satisfy your hunger without giving extra calories. - No food in between two main meals, if you feel hungry take green salads. - Avoid more use of tea and coffee which give extra calories. - Avoid cold drinks, ice creams - Avoid sedentary life style. Go for regular exercise like running, swimming, jogging daily for 30-40 minutes for 5 days in a week. To prevent collection of fat in tummy, go for abdominal recti muscle exercise which will prevent deposition of fat in tummy. Rule out diabetes and hypothyroid by getting blood tests done. I hope I answered your query. If you have further query or clarification, please ask. Take care.
